Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Captain America #6

Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

American Carnage #2 (DC Comics/Vertigo) – The first issue was a solid set up of a former FBI agent who has to go undercover in a white supremacist organization. We’re intrigued and excited by this series and can’t wait to read more.

Black Badge #5 (BOOM! Studios) – One of the best new series this year! Basically, Boy Scouts who are recruited into doing black ops.

Captain America #6 (Marvel) – The first story arc wraps up and its hinted at something big happening. We’ve loved this series and can’t wait to see what’s next.

Dead Man Logan #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was fantastic and though this seems like on surface another “lets kill a hero and make some money” event, so far, it’s exceeded expectations.

Extermination #5/Infinity Wars #6/Spider-Geddon #5 (Marvel) – These three are on the list for the same reason… We want to know how they end!

Freedom Fighters #1 (DC Comics) – Head to Earth X for superheroes punching Nazis!

Hardcore #1 (Image Comics) – From Image and Skybound this new series written by Andy Diggle with art by Alessandro Vitti is about a program where anyone’s body can be taken over making them into human drones to target the bad guys. Interesting concept. We’re in.

Livewire #1 (Valiant) – The character takes the spotlight and we’ve already had lots of praise of this issue.

Review: Infinity Wars #4

Requiem is victorious. Infinity has been warped. Reality only has one hope.

The world is warped and what will those who know the truth do to stop Gamora? This is the issue where the heroes gather and reality unveiled before the attack begins.

Writer Gerry Duggan gives us a story that’s needed, I’m just left wondering if it needed an entire issue. Infinity Wars #4 isn’t bad, it’s just a transition issue for the greater story. It’s exactly that moment when the heroes gather. It’s just it’s the entire issue. What could happen in a few pages instead is dragged out.

But, what is a very decompressed segment, is still pretty engaging. A lot of that is due to Duggan who adds a dash of humor as the heroes discover they’ve been mashed together. There’s also some fun to see combinations as they’re revealed one at a time.

That’s the highlight of the issue, the reader getting to see what crazy combos the creative team has come up with. What heroes go with whom and if you can guess the combination before they’re split apart. That’s the real draw and honestly not a whole lot else. Most of the issue could easily have been wrapped up and included in other issues, maybe having expanded them a bit. It’s not bad, it’s just a lack of the excitement other issues have been filled with.

The issue also becomes flawed in what Requiem has allowed. There’s massive flaws and for someone who can control everything and do anything, it feels a bit like when the villain goes on and on or tells the hero their plan. It’s a bit eye rolling to be honest.

Mike Deodato, Jr.‘s art along with the color of Frank Martin and lettering of Cory Petit is fantastic and the real draw. The designs for these new characters are great. And, the page layouts are something different as well. There’s some solid work that keeps a story that’d otherwise feel slow moving. The details are what kept me interested

The issue is fine as part of the greater story but on its own, it lacks a bit. The art is solid and a draw but the issue feels like it’s filler before we get back to the good stuff. What happens is important, it just didn’t need to take an entire issue.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

After Houdini (Insight Comics) – Harry Houdini is a top-secret operative for the US Government during World War I and the government needs his son to take his place! Sounds like fun to us!

Captain America #4 (Marvel) – Ta-Nehisi Coates’ run on Captain America has been amazing so far and we’re expecting no less from this issue. It’s a perfect blend of action and depth.

Infinite Dark #1 (Top Cow Productions/Image Comics) – The universe has ended and humanity exists on a ship whose occupants await the next Big Bang. But, there’s a murder that needs to be investigated. The concept sounds amazing and original and we’re totally in.

Infinity Wars #4 (Marvel) – The event has been much better than expected and with everything warped, we want to know what what happens next.

Last Space Race #1 (AfterShock Comics) – The pitch for the series which sounds a bit like the Right Stuff and X-Files has us intrigued to find out more about this.

My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies (Image Comics) – Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips with an original graphic novel. Nuff said.

Ruinworld #4 (BOOM! Studios) – Really fun fantasy for all-ages.

Spider-Geddon #1 (Marvel) – Marvel has been putting together a solid lead up to this even which again brings together various Spider-people from around the Multiverse.

Transformers: Unicron #5 (IDW Publishing) – Things are wrapping up and it looks like everyone is dying. This is definitely the dark before the light as IDW brings to a close an epic run of the Transformers that’s been years in the making.

The Wrong Earth #2 (AHOY Comics) – The first issue of this series was amazing which has two heroes switching places with their multiverse self. Image grim and gritty mixed with a happier version. Add in so much more material in the comic and you’ve got a hell of a package from a publisher that’s showing we should expect more from comics.
